PHOTOMONTH IN KRAKOW — 2010 Photomonth_kropki_duze

FACTS OF LIFE €“ PHOTOGRAPHY IN BRITAIN 1974€“1997 Photomonth_kropki_duze

Curator: Katy Barron


This year's Photomonth in Krakow will include a panorama exhibition of British photography from 1974-1997, a period in which it underwent a remarkable evolution.
The exhibition, curated by Katy Barron, is meant to give the Polish public as broad a spectrum as possible of British photography over the space of three decades. Thus the multitude of names, the diversity of artistic approaches, and the numerous perspectives on the same medium. The photographers chosen by Katy Barron whose pictures will be shown at the exhibition are key figures for the development of photography in Great Britain, and also have a great deal of recognition abroad. The majority of them are employed by prestigious photography agencies, such as Magnum Photos or Viva. Owing to the wide span of the project’s content, the curator has divided the exhibition into a few independent theme-based parts.

The photographers in brief:

Chris Killip


Chris Steele-Perkins

Jem Southam

John Davies


Paul Graham


Tom Wood


Martin Parr

Richard Billingham
